Consumer confidence rebounds

Washington (AP) -- U.S. consumer confidence rebounded in March, providing a further sign that the economy's prospects should brighten with warmer weather.

The Conference Board said its confidence index rose to 82.3 in March from a February reading of 78.3. It marked the first time the index has been above the 82 level since last June, when it stood at 82.1.

Consumer confidence is closely watched because consumer spending accounts for 70 percent of economic activity.
